I do have some problems with itchy skin since being on Remicade. For me, it's just a worsening of my normal dry-skin itching. I use a good moistureizer all over every night before I go to bed, and that mostly controls it. For my eczema (which I've had since before Remi) or for stubborn itchy spots, I have a topical cortisone ointment that I use.
